Real Life Tron!
« on: December 27, 2010, 03:39:01 PM »
Okay, to start with, no, this isn't a tutorial for how to encode yourself into data and become one with the TRONiverse - there are dangerous narcotics for that purpose (though legally I do not recommend them).

This is instead about two really cool TRON related things avaliable to you; one will need your gigantic wallet full of about $55,000 US for your very own lightcycle, and the other you can do at home for not very much at all, if you have a handy bland bag kicking around.
Just in case people were wondering, it stands for 'At The Convenience Of The Experimenter.'

And now... this!

Yeah... Sticking true to the film (I haven't seen the sequel yet), it seems unable to turn... Unless it's picked up and placed at a right angle to itself.

Also, consultation with a friend has dictated that the walls that it leaves behind must be invisible, and thus, even more advanced than the ones featured in TRON.

Technology is truly amazing.

.. kinda defeats the purpose of the game Light cycles if you have to ride a bike that can't steer and you keep crashing into walls you can't see :P

Especially considering that traditionally you start the game driving towards one another.

It is a very quick way to get a draw... Nobody's a loser! Or alive.
